Film Screening: The Invisible War

ALLIES, in collaboration with the Women’s Center, will screen Impact Partners’ second Academy Award nominated documentary this season, “The Invisible War.” This is a groundbreaking investigative documentary about one of America’s most shameful and best kept secrets: the epidemic of rape within the U.S. military. The film paints a startling picture of the extent of the problem – today, a female soldier in combat zones is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire. The Department of Defense estimates there were a staggering 19,000 violent sex crimes in the military in 2010. “The Invisible War” exposes the epidemic, breaking open one of the most under-reported stories of our generation, to the nation and the world.
